2nd Logo (October 20, 2007-2011?)

Visuals: Light beams from the complicated surface full of repeating pattern - a four-point figure in a circle. After the screen zooms through the surface, we can see intensive bluish light spreading into four directions, but then it decreases to show white "RIGEL" and light blue "ENTERTAINMENT" below, while the light beams from "G". The logo slowly zooms out.

Variant: The closing version used in made-for-TV movies is still on a white background.

Technique: CGI by The Ether.
